"Invited as a paper from E-Learn 2005" Recently, the educational settings have witnessed a growing use of web-based ICT applications and courseware development tools to supplement traditional teaching. Limited studies have evaluated effectiveness of such new technologies. In this article, a survey was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of e-Blackboard instructional platform system in terms of students' perceptions based on the students' interactive behaviour with the ICT-rich learning environment. The classical Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) framework was utilized. Results suggest that the ease of use as well as the usefulness of technology positively influences student's attitudes towards the system, which in turn determines technology's effectiveness. Perception of usefulness also significantly influences technology effectiveness.
